I'm guessing that most of you don't think much of Detroit, but I'm from the Ann Arbor-area, I'm going to go to the University of Michigan, I've got all of my family and friends in the area, I've got all my sports teams in the area (lol), I love the city of Detroit - and I want to live and work there...and I'd also like to make as lucrative a living as I can there.
I've done a lot of research on hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, investment banking, consulting, and investment management...so, I know a little bit about how much the top execs in those fields make, about their career paths, and about their job responsibilities. But, I still don't know enough about what's available in the Detroit-area, and how salaries there compare to more popular financial hubs (NY, CHI, SF, etc.). I do know that McKinsey's got an office in Detroit, and that Ann Arbor's got a couple of good venture capital firms, but that's about it (I don't come from a 'finance/law/corporate-family,' obviously).
So...here's my question: What are some of the top paying financial jobs (/financial firms) in the greater metro Detroit-area? And how do their salaries compare to other top fields in the area...lawyers, doctors, corporate execs, etc...?
Thanks a ton for any help guys!
Little background info - I'm still just a high school senior, I've got a wide-range of interests, and I've got - what I believe to be - a wide range of skills and talents as well. So, I'm still pretty open in terms of career choices. I think that I'm going to start off at the UofM with the intentions of getting into the undergraduate business program (BBA degree). I could probably get into a good MBA program (after getting some work experience) or law school if I did well in that program. I might even hedge my bets a little bit and take some pre-med courses in my first year.
